. the president spoke as president of the united states that comes with a platform and a responsibility. he put it on the line. eight years ago when he addressed the convention he was a cand date and now a president of the united states and that comes with responsibility and experience of foreign policy and sensitive diplomacy measures and i believe he was correct to make that difference between him and mitt romney . >> we have a politician that will do anything by any means necessary to gain votes. anything that mitt romney didn't talk about, president obama was going to. >> gretchen: so mitt romney faced criticism because he didn't talk about the military in his speech. >> first nominee to not talk about the armed conflicts or thank the truth. >> gretchen: but was this the right thing for the president to do. do people remember when he had no foreign policy. >> four years ago when he was on the road, he made a foreign trip and the crowds were amazing and it was a successful foreign trip. mitt romney goes and he does have a bunch of gaffes in the olympics and had made mistakes in what he said.
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha

of the united states will play a strong part in the development of these vehicles. as well as we also started a venture firm. the venture fund operates out of new york. it started 15 months ago, we made our first investment in a company called my city way, which is working on intermodal transport. started in new york, now in 35 cities around the country and many cities around the world provided information to not only our customers, but also anyone interested in moving from a to be in a city. that has worked exceedingly well. as you have seen, we have been investing in other companies as well. the electric charging stations system is another one of those. as is our first in this and in parking. most of us leave our house is in the morning, go to work, part of our cars at work, leave a vacant parking space at home. if you can bring a marketplace together where someone can park under drive during the day, and of course, give them a certainty of where they will part, it works. many thousands of customers now are enjoying that has a potential different way of operating in the city. drive now was
, and that is why i am running for a second term as president of the united states. >> as joe biden likes to break, bin laden is dead and detroit is alive. >> i've met workers in detroit and toledo who feared they'd never build another american car, and today they can't build them fast enough because we reinvented a dying auto industry that's back on top of the world. >> looking forward, the president favors keeping education and green energy programs, keeping medicare like it is, and he wants the rich to pay more for that. >> i never said this journey would be easy, and i won't promise that now. yes our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. yes, our road is longer, but we travel it together. we don't turn back. we leave no one behind. >> i've done well, he said, and i need to do more. i'm steve handelsman, nbc news at the dnc in charlotte. >>> well, elsewhere a 21-year-old charlotte man has been arrested by the secret service for allegedly posting threats to kill president obama on twitter. authorities say donte jamar sims was detained wednesday after posting messages including one on w
that word, the auto industry of the united states at that time? >> it sounds like rhetoric. but -- and it is rhetoric, i guess, because it's words. but i think they're actually factual words. president bush and hank paulson agree because they were the first ones to provide capital to the auto industry. if the government had not stepped in, these companies would have had to literally shut their doors, they would have run out of cash, had to lay off their workers. the suppliers would have gone down. ford would have gone down. the industry would have shut down. whether it would have ultimately liquidated would depend on what would have happened after that. >> that is not the case. and in fact we got some very strong numbers earlier this week. are you surprised at the strength of auto sales at this point? >> no, i'm not surprised because you need to sell 15 million cars a year in this country simply to keep the fleet from aging. and we have not done that now for over four years. this is unprecedented in american history. so you have a huge amount of pent-up demand for cars beca
